Personal Social Health Education (PSHE)

We use the Jigsaw scheme of work which teaches PSHE through a mindfulness approach. Children explore relationships with their friends and family. Children develop their knowledge of changes that happen in their lives and develop strategies of how to cope in difficult circumstances.

Jigsaw has six units one for each half term. (see progression grid)

  • Being me in my world
  • Celebrating Difference
  • Dreams and Goals
  • Healthy Me
  • Relationships
  • Changing Me

We aim to help children examine their own and other people’s attitudes and values and to be able to make informed decisions.  We allow children to develop respect for themselves and others by discussing self-esteem and positive images.  We provide opportunities for children to explore feelings and attitudes such as love, anger, trust, respect and sadness.  Children discuss various aspects of hygiene and healthy eating which helps them acquire the knowledge and understanding that will enable them to choose healthy lifestyles.

Relationships & Sex Education (SRE)

The guide available to download below explains in more detail what relationships and sex education consists of within the primary PSHE curriculum. It offers an insight for parents and carers  to how it fits into our PSHE scheme and gives a detailed overview of what is taught in each year group covering this aspect of PSHE. It offers parents/carers advice and tips of what to say when talking to their child about sensitive issues.

Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) Development at Sudley Infant School

SMSC development is now referenced throughout Ofsted’s School Inspection Handbook. At Sudley Infant School, we have a thoughtful and wide-ranging promotion of pupils’ Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural development and their physical well-being, which enables them to thrive in a supportive, highly cohesive learning community.  (see attachment which highlights what we do in each of these areas).
